Grasmere Gingerbread

Following my post yesterday, about our visit to the Lake District, I have been asked to publish a picture showing what the inside of the Grasmere gingerbread looks like, so here goes.

For completeness, I'm showing it in wrapped and unwrapped states... The old-fashioned wrapping is one of the attractions from my point of view. It consists of greaseproof paper neatly folded and secured with a rubber band. None of this modern clingfilm nonsense!

As you can see, it is "biscuity" rather than "bready". The inside is chewy and sticky and "unctuous"... And of course gingery.

Yes, I endorse this product. You should buy some whenever you have the opportunity! You can order it on-line via their website


  1. Looks kinda strange at first but I bet they are really tasty. Reminds me of American Graham Crackers which are delicious and a favourite crushed and made into american pie crusts.

  2. Yes, but you can't bend a Graham cracker! These things are chewy...

  3. Ooh, I love that :-) Jamie O has a recipe for a similar gingerbread at
